String Band Order of March

The next big piece of the 2012 puzzle has been laid.  We now know the Order of March for the String Bands for the January 1, 2012 parade.  Here it is, courtesy of String Band Association President John Pignotti.  If Irish American String Band, which did not march in 2011, comes back into the parade, it will be first, followed by Duffy, then Fralinger, which has drawn another early start.  But notice there are some other “power bands” not far behind that and there’s a healthy assortment throughout.  Hegeman and Woodland draw the final appearances, coveted by most bands.

1-IRISH AMERICAN
2-DUFFY
3-FRALINGER
4-BROOMALL
5-AQUA
6-SO PHILADELPHIA
7-POLISH AMERICAN
8-UPTOWN
9-FERKO
10-QUAKER CITY
11-AVALON
12-KENSINGTON
13-OVERBROOK
14-TRILBY
15-PENNSPORT
16-DURNING
17-HEGEMAN
18-WOODLAND
Based on this, the chess game of themes and execution now gets more intense.  Fun.
